A new cryptovirus calling itself PUBG Ransomware demands that you play the video game "Player Unknown Battlegrounds" for 7 hours.
That is not needed as the program will unlock your files almost immediately after you begin playing.
There are other ways with which you can unlock your files, one of them being the unlock code "s2acxx56a2sae5fjh5k2gb5s2e".

If you got your files unlocked, you should scan your computer with a security software,
to make sure that the PC is clean and protected from the ransomware, as well as other malware threats.

If you are having trouble with this ransomware, stumble upon a new version of it or have questions, simply write below.

The ransomware targets players, regardless of the way they launch the game and what additional software they have or what Internet provider they have, but the good news is that its actions are reversable.

Having the game, as long as its paid and not "cracked" shouldn't be a cause for concern.

If nothing has happened by now, your files and computer are most probably okay. I can think of a keylogger that can collect passwords, but I don't think there are such distributed with this ransomware. Anyway, it depends where you downloaded the game from. If it was from a website you trust, then you should be okay, but if you downloaded from PirateBay or some unofficial mirror you should scan your PC and registry for viruses (malware).

In this day and age, I wouldn't risk it with a cracked version.
I am not sure but I think the mobile version is free, which you can make be displayed on your PC and use a keyboard.

Best Regards,
